THEY CALLED ME CECIL
This is my memorial portrait and tribute to Cecil, a magnificent African lion in his prime.
On the night of July 1, 2015, Cecil was illegally lured out of the protected area and wounded with an arrow by Walter Palmer, an American big-game trophy hunter. He then tracked and killed Cecil with a compound bow the following morning, 10 and 12 hours later. Sadly, Palmer was never charged for his crime
Cecil was 13 years old when killed.
